“AHA" MOMENT:
Micro- tears in the earlobe caused by earlobe stretching has plagued body modifiers since it gained popularity in the 1980's. This is primarily due to improper stretching methods and a severe lack of stretching devices available.

THE BIG IDEA:
Project: Solstice has designed an insert that will fit securely into an existing piercing and will allow the user to expand it to multiple sizes in a slower, more controlled manner.

WHY THIS IDEA IS BETTER THAN THE REST:

THE SKY'S THE LIMIT:
With funds raised, Project: Solstice will be investing in an LLC company formation, a patent search and prototyping services.
